Carnuba waxes, extracted from palm leaves, are used to impart a glossy sheen and are seen in car waxes, shoe polishes, furniture polish and more. Parafin wax is derived from petroleum, shale or coal and is used in making lubricants, electrical insulation and candles. Other wax emulsions are used in printing inks, lacquers, leather and textiles, paper, wood and particle board products.
The better the wax emulsion, the better the finished product. The more you can reduce the wax droplets within a water phase, the more sheen polishes and waxes can impart for improved appearance or the improve its sealing properties
